VB.Net2005 Form Designing

Hello,

I have created one form in vb.net 2005 and i need its printout on A4 size
paper, but its leave some space on top and bottom, i have also tried to
increased the size of that perticular form but it allows me max 760 pixel
only.

So can you please give me the solution for How can i increase that form size
in vb.net 2005. is it a limitation?

Looking for your prompt reply.

Thanking you,

What is the resolution of your monitor/video card? It will not let you
make a form that is greater than the size of the screen.

How are you trying to increase the size? I just created a 1024 x 1024 form
in a VS 2005 VB Windows app, simply by changing the Size property values in
the designer. If you are using the Express Edition, I suppose there *could*
be a form size constraint, but that seems illogical. Somebody with VB
Express installed could say for sure.

Excellent point!
Never occurred to me that anybody would try to do such a thing.

Yes, but what is the max resolution of your monitor? I was developing
an application where I needed a form to be 1280 x 1024 and even though
the video card in my machine supported that resolution, the monitor
that I had did not. It only supported 1024 x 768, The largest form VS
would allow me to create was 1024 X 768 until I switched monitors. VS
would not let me create a form larger than the resolution of the
monitor. I use VS 2005 Team Developer edition.

If this is wrong, then I must have a problem then.

When I responded to your other post, I was agreeing with you. I apologize if
it seemed otherwise.
My resolution is 1280 x 1084, thus creating a 1024 x 1024 form is not a
problem for me. However, I *cannot* create a 1280 x 1280 form.
I think we're both waiting for the OP to come back and give us more
information, which will probably indicate that his resolution is 1024 x 768
:)

And I have never understood that limitation. It seems entirely
possible that a developer could be working on a project for a higher
resolution that his own computer equipment could support.

Obviously, testing such an app would be difficult, but I don't think I
should be restricted from doing it, however.
